Cruising World’s “Boat of the Year” award as Best in-Shore Cruiser
and Sail Magazine’s “Best New Boat”

The Catalina 315 was introduced at the 2012 United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland. The Catalina 315 and all 5 Series yachts evolved by taking advantage of many of the proven and robust construction details included with all their larger models from the recent past. However there were many innovations that defined all 5 Series Catalina yachts.

A short list includes:

  • Strick Zone & Watertight collision bulkhead
  • Dedicated 5th part structural grid
  • Deep Defense rudder system
  • T-Beam mast step system
  • Ball N Socket chain plate system
  • Teak interiors
  • Lead keels
